HIPAA enforcement and audits are now a significant reality, and settlements for violations are being announced for more violations regularly.  Now, with the increases in breach reporting and the HIPAA random audit program, enforcement of HIPAA is something that every HIPAA entity and business associate needs to be aware of and prepared for, by taking the proper steps in advance to have your compliance in order and the documentation to prove it.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to:

1. Understand how to use information about breaches, enforcement actions, and prior HIPAA Audits to focus attention on the most important issues.

2. Know how to use simple documentation tools like the HIPAA Audit Protocol to review compliance and track improvements.

3. Understand what to expect if you are selected for an enforcement investigation.

4. Know more about the typical kinds of breaches that can occur and how to prevent them.

•     Find out what the audit process is, what HHS OCR is likely to ask you if you are selected for an audit or compliance review, and what you'll have to have prepared already when they do.
